'100-Year' Thank You's
From our four “100-Year” pastors and their wives ...
Karin and I remain humbled and in awe to be part of what we’re sure was the best celebration of its kind ever at Bethlehem! Just think what heaven is going to be like when the we get to spend endless time with everyone in their reception lines—and nobody will get tired of standing or have to leave early! We’re so loved by Bethlehem in the Beloved.—The Livingstons
Thank you so much for the celebration last Sunday afternoon. It was delightful and the best anniversary party in the 30-plus years I have been here! And even more, thank you for the opportunity to serve as one of your pastors these last 30 years. Bethlehem is an amazing place to work and minister because of its wonderful people and vision of God and his greatness. With hearts filled with love and gratitude for you all, Brad & Cindy Nelson
“We have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us” (2 Corinthians 4:7). Thank you for the kindness and love shown to us two jars of clay last Sunday, and for the last 20 years. God's kindness continues as we persevere with you toward more and more Christlikeness in the strength he supplies. With love, Sam & Vicki Crabtree
After last Sunday’s celebration we were overwhelmed with thankfulness to God for our church—so many precious believers we have worked, worshipped, and wept with while raising our children and weathering life. The support you’ve shown to our family is a marvelously obvious extension of God’s love and power at work in your own lives. To God be the glory. Thank you. Much love, Chuck & Carol, Daniel, Allison, and Kiandra Steddom
